I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan - An Astonishing Memoir by Alan Partridge

Who is Alan Partridge?

Alan Partridge, a renowned journalist, presenter, and broadcaster, has captivated audiences with his charming and enigmatic persona. Behind the scenes, Alan is a devoted husband, a loving father, and a man with an incredible history and an even more promising future.

Alan's journey started in a world of rationing, Teddy Boys, and apes in space. He carved his path in the broadcasting industry, beginning as the chief DJ of Radio Smile at St. Luke's Hospital in Norwich. From there, he climbed the ranks as the presenter of Scout About, to eventually enter the prestigious top 8 of BBC sports presenters.

The Rise and Fall of Knowing Me, Knowing You

Alan's big break came with his primetime BBC chat show, Knowing Me, Knowing You. Unfortunately, poor scheduling and fierce competition against the News at Ten led to its downfall. Despite its cancellation, Alan remained undeterred. He saw it as an opportunity to wind up his production company, bid farewell to London, and fulfill his lifelong ambition to return to his roots in local radio.

An Open and Unfiltered Memoir

The memoir, I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan, is a candid and entertaining retelling of Alan's life. The book is a literary masterpiece, written entirely in Alan's own words. No ghostwriter was necessary; with his grade B English Language O-Level, Alan was more than capable of undertaking the task himself.

Within the pages of his memoir, Alan delves into his personal struggles, including his tragic Toblerone addiction and the heart-wrenching moment when his first autobiography, Bouncing Back, faced a fate worse than death - being pulped like 'word porridge'. He also sheds light on his relationship with his ex-Ukrainian girlfriend, Sonja, and offers his unfiltered opinions on the decision-makers at the BBC.

A captivating and emotional journey, I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan is a testament to Alan's resilience and unwavering passion for broadcasting. It showcases the remarkable life of one of the greatest presenters of our time.
